Stuxnet may have screwed up a digitally-controlled deep fat fryer in the ship's galley

Atlantic Ocean - (Malware): The high tech virus is suspected of being behind a chaotic digital chip pan fire started aboard a Norwegian-registered fishing smack called the MV Athena.

Coastguards were called out late last night as the blaze spread from the ship's galley, threatening to toast the day's catch of 5 tonnes of salmon and glue tin (sic) tuna.

Last week the computer malware was thought to be behind the scuppering of the Royal Navy's flagship nuclear sub HMS Preposterous.

Admiralty sources also fear Stuxnet may have clogged up the works of a missing Russian Akula-class sub, last seen menacing about in Loch Ness' murky waters.

Maritime and Coastguard Agency firefighters eventually managed to bring the blaze under control and evacuate all 111 crew - despite threatening to toss them all overboard in the continuing Fire Services overtime spat scheduled to strike on Bonfire Night.

MI6 cryptographer Gareth Williams' favorite snack was grilled king prawns a la greque.
